Please make it clear to players that Tradeable Rare does not mean discontinued.

I know the difference, but as seen with the wieldable mainhand and off-hand Turkey incident, some players do not.

If Jagex does not say an item is discontinued, it may be released again at a future date, even if it says Tradeable Rare or Limited, it is not the same as discontinued which has no current plans to be re-released. Notice I said no current plans to be re-released and not that they will not be re-released ever again.

Even discontinued just means not currently available through gameplay and is not a promise the item will never to be released again as far as I can tell. Although most players probably think of discontinueds as never being released again, the marketplace Discontinued Items forum specific rules does not say they will never be released again, which suggests they might be recontinued at some point, even if there are no plans to do so at this time. Some items might never be re-released, but any item could be re-released theoretically.

I am not sure if Jagex would want to make a list of items they would promise never to re-release, since policy may change in the future. If a list of items that Jagex would promise never to recontinue were to exist, the marketplace Discontinued Items forum specific rules would seem an appropriate place for such a list.

When Jagex makes a news post, please state if an item may return again. Some players think Tradeable Rare means discontinued, although it does not. Also, just because an item may return again it is not a promise that it will.

Has the probability of earning a multiplier decreased since last time? Yesterday I used my daily keys and unlocked multipliers with both keys (up to x3). Since then I used 60 keys and got 0 multipliers. Is this expected?


No it hasn't changed, its just RNG. On one account I got 2 or 3 multipliers in 4 keys, on another I got 1 in the same number of keys. Some accounts get none in 4 keys.

You can also get your hands on brand new rainbow-themed prizes, the Pot of Gold orb, Rainbow Wand and shiny Rainbow Halo! They're tradeable rares, and will be just as sought after as the previous rainbow items - the Rainbow Amulet, Cape, Bow and Parasol.


So not at all because nobody wants this trash that seems to return every other week, despite being advertised as "tradeable rares", which to your loyal playerbase has always meant "discontinued" (i.e. not coming back).


I would have argued about this with you before Kale100, but after the wieldable mainhand and off-hand turkeys I can see that Jagex is not making it clear to all players that tradeable rare does not mean discontinued and is profiting from some player's misunderstanding in thinking tradeable rares are discontinueds when they are not.

I would like Jagex to clearly state tradeable rares are not discontinued and that they may be obtainable again in the future each time they make a newspost advertising them.
